Bite

I see you there
so proud of your hole
in the wall
Remedial animal smell
the body’s red trail
a tantalizing prick
a gathering
The power behind my legs
millions of righteous angels
single-minded
The face of certainty
is full of teeth
I have pages of flaws
why is that news
It’s just a dozen eggs
in the morning
Cooling coffee
A dog howling
Dry hands in the night
Here just hold it
Your breath is a cup
for my breath
Stop pouring it out
We’re both right here
Let your plants die
to experience guilt
around choices
if there isn’t enough
already
Fear will rob you
A good flogging
is just skin
You did it
Like killing a bear
and wearing its skin out
The rest of your life
means something
different now
